Just inspected our exhaust
hose, which curved around a bolt at the base of the rudder
. The hose does not appear to be leaking; however, there's a noticeable crease and possible crack in the sidewall. When looking from the top, I'd guess it is indented 3/16". You can kinda see the indentation and possible cut along the wire reinforcement.
Should I replace (and obviously reroute)? What do you think about cutting and adding a connector piece with a set of double hose-clamps?
